Having problems with your HP Pavilion Media Center M1090n (PC100A) PC Desktop ?

Bad video board? Trying to figure out is card is bad or if it's drivers.

\015 My HP m1090n PC is a few years old. Lately, there are artifacts even on the blue boot screen which continue on whilst Windows (XP Media Center, SP3) boots. If I keep acceleration set to one of the three higher settings on the video board (Radeon X600), thing blacks out. Sometimes the Catalyst Control Center can recover and I think it does so by reducing video settings. All drivers and BIOS are current, which makes me think the video memory has gone and I need to replace the board. Any thoughts?\015

Answers :

I agree, it does sound like it is on its last leg. Keep the settings on low and run it til it dies!
